The M-65 liner was introduced in the late 1960s as an added layer for soldiers to wear in their M-65 Field Jackets—an upgraded replacement for the M-1951 Field Jacket used in the Korean War, itself an improvement of WWII's M-1943 Jacket.
The separately issued liner piece was made of a nylon onion-quilted outer shell with polyester, designed to better serve soldiers fighting in Vietnam's tropical and, at times, brutal climate.
Over the decades, the M-65 Field Jacket has been endlessly reinterpreted by designers from all over the world. In recent years though, the M-65 Liner has managed to make a name for itself as a staple piece in the fashion world.
